The Region of South East Queensland of Soroptimist International Australia, is pleased to host a Rosie Batty Roadshow breakfast at Brisbane City Hall on 5 October 2016 as part of our Brisbane Club’s annual “Answer the Call” fundraiser breakfast.
The “Answer the call” fundraiser supports the much needed Helpline at Women’s Legal Service Queensland who is at the frontline of domestic violence prevention, providing free legal and welfare help to Queensland women and their children who experience domestic violence. In January 2016 Women’s Legal Service started a new Helpline to assist more women at times when they need it most. The Helpline was started thanks to help from founding supporters including Soroptimist International Brisbane, and has achieved a 700% increase in calls answered. This has meant that over 10,000 women will be able to receive help this year. Support from the Answer the Call breakfast will help Women’s Legal Service to provide more legal appointments to women who require ongoing assistance in regard to domestic violence and building a safer future.
The Brisbane Club was a founding member for the Helpline and continues to provide much needed support to continue to provide a safer community.
Join us for breakfast with Rosie Batty as part of Soroptimist International Australia’s bid for a national and united approach across Australia to #orangetheworld as part of the United Nations 16 days of Activism “Orange the World” in our campaign across Australia in the first ever Rosie Batty Roadshow to UNiTe to End Violence Against Women.
